Anyone else found January to have lasted 42 weeks!? Arghhh! Its cold, I am broke & already craving a 2 week holiday in Dubai...a girl can dream!
To keep me going I have been treating myself (all sale items, lol!) so here are a few of my must haves for this month!
1. My hands have been SO DRY! Anyone else had this? Its so cold where I live and my hands were literally cracking (gross!) then I found this Cath Kidston hand cream in my draws- I think it was a gift or came from a set but then I found it on their website too and its only £4.00 (amazing!) I like that its not too oily but really thick and smells yummy. There is also a sale on at the minute too with codes for their website so check them out here- https://www.cathkidston.com/toiletries/grove-bunch-50ml-hand-cream-1026603
2. So hot baths in the winter are a must for me and really help me sleep. I bought a bath bomb from lush for £3.95, it was pretty small but I bought it because it was a calming one with a lavender sent. It totally works! Its small but the smell filled my bathroom and I felt so relaxed after- fresh PJ's and I was away for the night (I am yawning thinking about it) You can grab it here- https://uk.lush.com/products/bath-bombs/little-bottle-calm
3. I mean...I have to include a contour product, right?! I have included this brush set as I went away for my birthday for a few nights earlier this month and the bag and brush bundle was perfect for it. The bag fitted the 8 brushes (all essentials for face, lips, eyes and concealer) plus all my makeup! You can also save £10.00 on this right now too so I had to include it in my months round up!

4. OK seriously, Feel Unique have had some amazing offers on this month and I cant get enough! Someone please tell them all they are just missing stocking Contour Cosmetics lol! I got a gift set, just because it was so cheap and cant wait to use the body scrub! I got 4 Sanctuary products for £9.00- shop it here! https://www.feelunique.com/p/Sanctuary-Spa-Sumptuous-Selection-Gift-Set
I am SOOOOO excited that we have FINALLY after over 12 months work launched our Rose Gold Collection on to the website *does an excited dance*
I came up with the concept of Jelly/bouncy products in March 2017 but wasn't sure where to go with it and how it would work. It took until November 2017 for me to finally start playing around with formulas and shades and get creating!
I love highlighters and I really wanted to bring something new, exciting and fun to the market but more importantly something that really works! Honestly, I love the highlighters (yeah, yeah, I am going say that!) but some products I bring out I wouldn't always use myself or they wouldn't be part of my day to day routine. These products have totally taken centre stage on my dressing table (and not just because they look so pretty!) So here is the low down on the collection & what it includes-
The Pressed Glitter Palette
We haven't had an eye palette since our Aphrodite Palette sold out so I was really keen to bring out something a bit different when bringing out our next palette.
I love glitter- like love it! But I found a lot of glitters were itchy, very clumpy and thick and were not comfortable to wear. My mission was to create really fine glitters that felt silky and comfortable but still seriously pigmented.
The feedback from the glitters has been amazing, better than I could have imagined and they are currently out selling the highlighters- which I am so happy and surprised about.
The palette consists of 7 shades and a little really does go a long way!
I was working on these way before any other jellies hit the market, but hey, the joys of being a small business means I cant get things out as quickly as I would always want to! However, they are here and I am more than happy with the shades, the formula and how they sit and feel on the skin. PLUS the packaging is probably the best I ever ever designed!
The jellies work in a similar way to liquid highlighters, you can apply straight on the skin to wear under your foundation to give a dewy highlight. Or use on the high points of your face for a full out glow (thats how I wear mine!)
They come in two shades- Rosé which is a rose gold shade or 24 Carat which is our gold shade. Rosé is so far proving more popular but I personally prefer 24 Carat Its so luxurious and warm- I love warm shades on my skin as I have a warmer undertone.
These little babies are now my day to day highlighters! They come in the same shades as the Jelly Highlighters and work really nicely with the Jellies for even more highlight (Hello, glow you can see from space!)
The texture is bouncy to the touch, it doesn't feel powdery or cakey like a powder, its really smooth with no fallout. Its so handy it comes in a compact with a mirror too- I pop this in my bag and use it as my day to day compact.
The Rose Gold Collection is my favourite set of products I have created in a really long time and I am so happy to share them with you. I would love to hear your feedback so please let me know how you are finding the products- I am dying to know!
As always thank you so much for supporting the Contour brand- you guys are AMAZING!
Our cream contour kits were designed with "multi-use" in mind...
Not only are these kits perfect for contouring and highlighting, we also use them a number of other ways so there are less products to carry around in our make up bags!
1. CARVE OUT YOUR EYEBROWS
As our contour palettes are highly pigmented, they are perfect for concealing and carving out eyebrows. This is a great way to enhance the shape of your brows and make your arch appear more defined! Check out this video by @manifestmakeup to get those super sharp brows!
2. USE AS FOUNDATION
. USE AS FOUNDATION
Out of foundation? No problem! Due to the high pigmentation of our contour palettes, they create an amazing full coverage foundation.
Pro Tip: Mix and match the contour and highlight shades to create your custom foundation shade
